The chemical, 4-methylcyclohexane methanol, got into water supplies after it leaked out of a storage tank and poured into the Elk River near an intake for a West Virginia American Water Co. treatment plant.

Officials detected the 7,000-gallon leak eight days ago, on January 9. More than 7,000 gallons of the chemical, which is used to clean coal, leaked into the river, according to officials.


I don't see what the big problem is.  It's basically soap.

Could I kill someone one day, declare moral bankruptcy the next day and walk away from the whole thing? If corporations are going to be people I want to be a corporation.

How exciting! This enables the Job Creators to make a clean break from the overbearing regulators who are crushing the free market. Now they can move their assets to another corporate structure, and continue adding Freedom Chemicals to water in other places. Yay Land of Opportunity!
